Long attended Dunbar High School in Washington D.C. The Washington Post selected Long as a member of their All-Met second team.
Long has had a nomadic collegiate career. He spent one year redshirting at West Virginia before transferring to New Mexico and sitting out the 2010 season. In 2011 he tallied 47 catches, good for a tie for first on the team, and 809 receiving yards. He also scored four touchdowns. Long’s performance was good enough to be named to the All-Mountain West second team.
In 2012 Long played for Iowa Western, a junior college. He was a first team All-American as he was tops in the NJCAA in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns. He caught 100 balls for 1,625 yards and 25 touchdowns. The 100 catches set a new NJCAA record and Iowa Western won the national title. Rivals.com listed Long as a five-star recruit.
Maryland landed Long in 2013 and he recorded 32 receptions for 489 yards and a touchdown before an injury he suffered in Maryland’s October 19 game against Wake Forest caused him to miss the last six games of the year. His best games in 2013 came against Florida International and West Virginia as he recorded a season-high nine catches for a season-high 110 yards against FIU. Meanwhile he tallied 116 all-purpose yards against the Mountaineers.
